Photographer's Note

The birds are much less afraid when the photographer gets down to their eye level. Sometimes they get so close you get caught with a bit too much lens. This is shot with a Canon 400mm f2.8 and 2x converter because this Oyster Catcher and some of his Oyster Catcher buddies were much farther away from me when I first get all the way down on the ground to photograph them using a sawed-off monopod for stability. There is no cropping here whatsoever.

Taken this afternoon at the Little Estero Critical Wildlife Area on Fort Myers Beach, Florida.
